Singapore School of Meditation and Yoga

I was invited by Singapore School of Meditation and Yoga ( SSMY ) weeks back. I had an amazing time there and it was a great eye opener for me!

 Japadas Bismark, the founder, who has dedicated his whole life in learning and teaching meditation taught us personally. After an hour of meditation followed by asana (a type of yoga), I felt really relax and the sensation flows through not only my body but my mind too!

   I feel that most yoga studios in Singapore are quite commercialised unlike SSMY. I have been to several yoga places before but they did not give me the same vibe like how the SSMY does. SSMY are not pushy like other studios and they still uphold the old ancient culture of yoga.

Through SSMY, they taught me the true meaning behind meditation and yoga. It is to cleanse our body and our thoughts. I guess the commercialised world has thrown away the spiritual benefits of yoga.
